14.34 Jane Goodall’s ROOTS & SHOOTS South Africa

Aired August 26th-September 1st on Inspiring South Africans with Heather de Wit 

Jane Goodall’s ROOTS & SHOOTS South Africa is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers ranging from young children, teenagers, young adults to the more mature adults.


Roots & Shoots – a worldwide youth organization – was formed by Dr. Jane Goodall to create awareness amongst youngsters on key issues such as the environment, animals and helping communities in need. By providing young people with positive experiences within their community and the natural world, Roots & Shoots aims to establish an ethic of care for the land, its people and its animals. It aims to cultivate an understanding of the interdependence of all life on earth, to inspire love, respect, admiration and a high regard for the value of it all.

Roots & Shoots strives to do this in a practical and enjoyable manner and participants can look forward to lots of hard work together with plenty of fun and laughter!


  1. To implement positive change through active learning about, caring for and interacting with the environment, demonstrating care and concern for all animals and enhancing understanding between individuals of different cultures, ethnic groups, religions, socio-economic levels and nations through our global communication network.

  2. To help young people develop self-respect, confidence in themselves and hope for the future by participation and creation of different types of educational programmes and community outreach projects.

  3. In addition, Roots & Shoots enjoys partnerships with other organisations in order to achieve similar goals
